43,942 people counted in the Luxembourg 2011 census have immigrated from abroad to Luxembourg between 2005 and 2011. More than a third (34.1%) of these immigrants settled in the City of Luxembourg. During the same period 65,627 people migrated from one municipality to another within the country. A clear trend appears, namely the fact that many people are leaving Luxembourg City for another part of the country, notably the suburbs. There are 4 507 people from another municipality who settled in the capital, but 12,035 people have left for another municipality. Two different geographical models are identified for immigration and internal migration. The capital attracts many immigrants (a proportion that far exceeds the percentage of inhabitants of the capital in the total population), while for internal migration, there are more people moving from Luxembourg City to another municipality. The age structure of immigrants from abroad and people who migrate internally is very similar. It is mainly young adults and their children. [less ▲]

In Luxembourg, 28.3% of households are renters, which corresponds to 24.7% of the population. 91.9% of renter households pay a normal rent and 8.1% a reduced rent. On average, a reduced rent is € 396.7, while a normal rent reaches € 887.8 for similar surfaces (respectively 84.1 m² and 83.5 m²). In absolute terms, the rents are higher in municipalities located in the outskirts of the capital. With the distance from Luxembourg City, rents decrease. However, the housing surfaces in densely populated areas such as the City of Luxembourg, are generally smaller, so that the rent per square meter is the highest in the capital: 14.7 € per m² in the City of Luxembourg, against 12.5 € per m² on national average. Significant differences also exist in rent according to the nationality of the tenant. Britons pay on average the highest rents, but together with the Dutch, they also have larger surfaces. Montenegrins rent the smallest surface area per capita (27.5 m²). The level of rents depends on the time of moving in the dwelling. The average rent for a dwelling in which a household moved from 2001 to 2011 is € 13 per m², against € 7 per m² for a dwelling in which a household moved before 1980. [less ▲]

In Luxembourg, a household has, on average, 129.9 m² surface of dwelling. But deviations from this average are important: with increasing household size, the surface of dwelling also increases. However, the surface per capita is highest for single households, that is to say, people living alone (95.2 m²). For a household of six people or more, the surface available per person is only 30.1 m². It is in Esch-sur-Alzette where the dwelling surface per household is the lowest (96.0 m² on average), while in Niederanven the dwelling surface per household reaches 190.2 m². Dwelling surfaces also vary according to the nationality of the reference person of the household. Households whose reference person is British have the largest dwelling surface (158.7 m² per household on average), followed by the Dutch (153.6 m² per household) and Luxemburgers (140.9 m²). With 97.9 m² per household on average, the Portuguese live in smaller dwellings. There is also a link between the occupancy status and the surface of the dwelling. Owner households live in the most spacious dwellings (147.7 m² on average), while the surface available for tenant households is only 83.6 m². As the household size of owners is on average greater than that of renter households, per capita differences are smaller. The dwelling surface per capita of an owner household is 69.9 m², while for a tenant household, the dwelling surface per capita is 47.2 m². 97.0% of dwellings have a minimum standard of basic equipment, i.e. a bathroom, a toilet and central heating.

In Luxembourg, there were 130,091 residential buildings at the time of the census. Single family homes are the prevalent type of buildings. They represent 83.5% of all residential buildings. Of the single family homes, detached houses are predominant (37.9% of all residential buildings), followed by single family semi-detached houses (25.0%) and single-family homes in a row (20.6%). Apartment buildings represent only 12.5% of total residential buildings. However, the share of the population living in single family homes is only 62.6%, while 32.7% of the population is living in apartment buildings. In the 208,565 private households, there are 503,280 people, that is to say, on average, 2.41 persons per household. One third of households (33.3%) are single households. 27.4% of residents live in two-person households and 15.9% in households of three people. The real estate market is moving. 9.4% of people surveyed in Luxembourg live less than one year in their home. 34.1% live in their homes for less than 5 years. More than two thirds of households (69.0%) are homeowners, 28.3% of households live in rental and 2.7% live in homes without paying rent. The percentage varies widely by nationality, but also by municipalities. 84.5% of Luxembourgers are homeowners. The percentage of owners is generally higher in municipalities located at a certain distance from the center. In Luxembourg-City, only 47.9% are homeowners. [less ▲]

In vielen europäischen Ländern haben Jugendliche zunehmend Probleme beim Übergang von der Schule in den Beruf. Die hohen Zahlen arbeitsloser Jugendlicher in vielen Ländern Europas verdeutlichen diesen Trend. Der vorliegende Bericht greift diese Entwicklung auf und beschäftigt sich mit den spezifischen Problemen und Risiken von Jugendlichen in Luxemburg beim Übergang auf den Arbeitsmarkt. In einem ersten Schritt werden die zentralen theoretischen Konzepte zur Beschreibung von Übergängen und Übergangsproblemen skizziert und kritisch erläutert. Davon ausgehend erfolgt für Luxemburg die differenzierte Beschreibung potentieller Problem- und Risikolagen von Jugendlichen. Die empirische Analyse erfolgt dabei auf der Grundlage vorhandener Daten (Sekundäranalyse). Der Blick wird nicht nur auf die Arbeitslosigkeit gerichtet, sondern auch auf die Situation Jugendlicher in Bildungs- und Arbeitsmaßnahmen, in prekärer Beschäftigung sowie auf Jugendliche, die inaktiv sind.

Between the 2001 and the 2011 censuses, the part of the persons in employment in the total population decreased slightly from 43.9 % to 43.2 %. For men this recoil was more important. The percentage of the men in employment passed from 52.2 % to 48.3 % of the total of the male population. The part of the women in employment on the other hand, increased from 35.7 % of the female population in 2001 to 38.2 % in 2011. However, in all the age groups, the men remain more numerous to be in employment than the women. The age of the beginning of the professional life increased, but the active life is also longer and this especially for women. The foreigners are relatively more numerous to be in employment (48.5 % of the foreign population) than the Luxembourgers (39.5 % of the Luxembourgish population). In medium age groups, the employment rates of the Luxembourgers are however higher than those of the foreigners. On the other hand, the foreigners are proportionally more numerous to be in employment at more advanced ages than the Luxembourgers. [less ▲]

The residents who perform a professional function are considered as "active". Unpaid family workers and part-time employed persons also belong to this category. From 2001 to 2011, the part of working people in the population decreased slightly from 43.9% to 43.2%. The part of persons exclusively occupied in their own household fell by 14.1% in 2001 to 8.8% in 2011. The part of unemployed persons, pupils and students has increased. Regarding gender, men are more likely to be active or retired, while women are relatively more likely to be occupied in their own household. Residents of foreign nationality are, in relative terms, more often active or unemployed than Luxembourgers who are more often in training or already in pension. These characteristics are partly due to the different age structure of the Luxembourgish and foreign population. [less ▲]

On 1st February 2011, 59.8% of residents were born in Luxembourg (306 221 persons). With 85.6%, the big majority of these people are Luxembourgish. Three-quarters (74.2%) of foreign-born living in Luxembourg have another nationality of the European Union, while 14.1% have the Luxembourgish nationality. 41.5% (+- 85 000 people) of the people born abroad arrived in the past 10 years. At the time of the census, 42,465 people were naturalized. Portuguese and Italians are the more numerous to have acquired the Luxembourgish nationality. If 20.2% of naturalized citizen have at least a second nationality (8 557 individuals), only 2.7% of Luxembourgish Birth (6 736 people) have at least a second nationality. Relating to the socio-economic status and the household size, significant differences are observed between Luxembourgish and foreigners. The share of Luxembourgish having a job is 39.5%, while for foreigners it is about 48.5%. If 16.6% of Luxembourgish are retired, they are only 8.4% among foreigners. The average household size is larger for foreigners (2.54) than Luxembourgish households (2.32). [less ▲]

Since the 2001 census, the foreign population has increased by nearly 35%. The 1st February 2011, there were 220 522 foreigners equivalent to 43.04% of the total population. People from the EU-27 countries (except Luxembourg) represent 37.41% of the resident population and nearly 87% of the foreign population living in the Grand Duchy. The Portuguese nationality is the first foreign nationality in the country with 82 363 individuals (16.08% of the total population). The increase of Luxembourgish is much less pronounced. On February 1st 2011, there were 291 831 persons with Luxembourgish nationality, that is to say an increase of 5.26% in comparison to 2001. The native people from Luxembourg constitute 48.67% of the total population. The average age for foreigners in Luxembourg is around 35 years, and is 6 years younger compared to Luxembourgish individuals. Foreign persons live mostly in the Centreor in the South of the country, but the growth of the number of foreigners in the last decade was higher in the Northern area than in other regions. [less ▲]

Depuis le recensement de 2001, la population a augmenté de 72 814 unités pour atteindre, au 1er février 2011, le nombre de 512 353 habitants, ce qui correspond à une croissance annuelle moyenne de 1.5%. L’âge moyen de la population est de 38.7 ans, c’est-à-dire 1.2 an de plus qu’en 2001. Pour re-présenter l’importance relative des différents groupes d’âge, on peut calculer le rapport de dé-pendance des jeunes et le rapport de dépendance des personnes âgées. Le rapport de dépendance des jeunes indique le nombre d’enfants et de jeu-nes entre 0 et 14 ans pour 100 personnes âgées de 15 à 64 ans. Ce rapport a diminué en passant de 28.2% en 2001 à 25.2% en 2011. Le rapport de dé-pendance des personnes âgées indique le nombre de personnes de 65 ans et plus rapporté à 100 per-sonnes ayant entre 15 et 64 ans. Ce rapport a bais-sé légèrement de 20.7% en 2001 à 20.4% en 2011. Toutefois, en termes de structure par âge, il y a des différences régionales et locales assez importantes. Ainsi, l’âge moyen varie de 34.2 à 42.9 ans selon les communes. [less ▲]

Au 1er février 2011, 512 353 personnes vivaient au Luxembourg. Les habitants du Grand-Duché se répartissent inégalement sur les différentes unités territoriales : le plus grand district a 6 fois plus d’habitants que le plus petit, le plus grand canton a 34 fois plus d’habitants que le plus petit et la plus grande commune en a 295 fois plus que la plus petite. Cette situation résulte d’un développement qui s’est déroulé de manière inégale. En 1851, les cantons étaient peuplés de manière à peu près égale (entre 13 000 et 17 000 habitants), à l’exception de Luxembourg-Ville, qui était déjà plus grande à l’époque, et du canton plus petit de Vianden. Toutefois, avec l’industrialisation du pays, la population des cantons de Luxembourg-Ville et du canton d’Esch a augmenté plus fortement et plus tôt que celle des autres cantons. Une forte croissance démographique de ces derniers cantons n’intervenait qu’à partir de 1960, et à Vianden à partir du tournant du millénaire. Comme les cantons et les communes sont très différents de par leur nombre d’habitants, mais moins en termes de surface, les densités de population sont très diverses. Au niveau des cantons, la densité varie de 45 à 1 824 habitants/km². Le sud-est du pays est le plus densément peuplé, la capitale affichant la plus grande densité. Au nord et à l’est du canton de Luxembourg, la densité de la population des cantons se situe, par contre, en dessous de la moyenne nationale qui est de 198 habitants/km². [less ▲]

Young people’s voting turnout, political interest, party membership and trust in politicians have decreased in many European countries for the last decades (European Commission, 2009; Stolle & Hooghe, 2005). Many social scientists suggest that this reduced interest and engagement is especially due to the increasing gap between the political system on the one hand and young people’s social situation on the other. They argue that conventional political forms of participation are less adapted to the diversity of youth lifestyles and forms of (self)-expression and that political decision making in times of economic crisis and rapid social change is not concerned with the problems of young people, their transition into labour market and their integration into society (Willems, Heinen & Meyers, 2012). The mobilization of an increasing number of young people for alternative forms of social and political engagement proves that the young generation is still engaged in democratic and civic behaviour. Young people believe in democratic values and they show high engagement in social, cultural and civil activities. They engage in political issues, but they do it different to the older generations (Norris, 2003; Sloam, 2011) The new forms of young people’s participation reflect their lifestyles and are adapted to their individual needs and interests. Their activities are more punctual, delimited, action-orientated, not hierarchical, and issue-based. Young people prefer forms of participation like the internet, petitions, demonstrations and consumer activism. Thus, they show rather a changed citizenship than a general political apathy (Dalton, 2008). Our contribution examines this broader concept of participation and takes the large variety of youth specific forms of participation into account. The presented findings are principally based on analysis of the European Social Values Studyurvey (EVSS). The main purpose is to elaborate on the factors that influence young people’s activities in the wide range of political engagement: What are the structural and individual conditions for young people’s engagement in the different fields? We focus on three levels: (1) the macro-level (e.g. democratic culture of the country), (2) the meso-level (e.g. leisure activities, membership in associations), and (3) the micro-level (e.g. age, gender, migration background, education).
